Looks much better, thanks! But there is still a nasty click-through
license that unfortunately seems to make it impossible to use it when
hacking on some javafx/openjdk hybrid since it seems to prevent usage on
various devices that seem specifically where we would love to to bring
java and javafx functionality to. And because it prevents trying to
figure out how thing work to write free replacements and/or for hacking
on any of the core classes. Could you please remove those restrictions.
Or better yet, loose the whole click-through. Specifically:

- The use of Software in systems and solutions that provide dedicated
functionality (other than as mentioned above) or designed for use in
embedded or function-specific software applications, for example but not
limited to: Software embedded in or bundled with industrial control
systems, wireless mobile telephones, wireless handheld devices,
netbooks, kiosks, TV/STB, Blu-ray Disc devices, telematics and network
control switching equipment, printers and storage management systems,
and other related systems are excluded from this definition and not
licensed under this Agreement.
